About This Activity

Come join us for the Inaugural We Give Hope 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk sponsored by the Family Violence Program and Family Resource Agency!  This USATF Certified course is flat and fast and takes place on the scenic Greenway in Cleveland, TN.  5K race will be chip timed.  The course will start and finish at Tinsley Park, going out 1.6 miles on the Greenway and returning on the same route.  Snacks and refreshments will be provided after the race.   All proceeds from this event will go to the Family Violence Program, which provides services such as a 24/7 hotline, support groups, crisis counseling, and court advocacy to victims of domestic and/or sexual violence.  The Harbor Safe House, a refuge where adult women and their children under the age of 18 can go when they have to escape their abuser, is also part of the program.
